Umphrey’s unveils new track “Booth Love” & continues tour (Stream)

DSC_8365.jpg Umphrey’s McGee, the Chicago sextet regarded as one of today’s most consistently innovative and provocative rock bands, premiered their soulful new song “Booth Love” on LA Times’ “Pop & Hiss” blog today. The song is just one of the highlights from heir kaleidoscopic new album, Death By Stereo, out next Tuesday (9/13, ATO).

Earllier this summer, Honest Tune‘s David Shehi (in partnership with Relix and the John Lennon Bus) was on the scene at the Hangout when Umphrey’s performed the song. Watch that performance here or listen to the studio rendition of “Booth Love” below.

“Booth Love” finds Umphrey’s swinging in an entirely new direction, with the LA Times calling the song “a mélange of thick bass, ghostly synth and succinct soul vocals” that recalls “a bit of disco-era Marvin Gaye” and “a hint of Radiohead.” It’s sharp, sexy, and sure to get crowds moving.
